The fertility rate in the United States has plunged to its lowest point on record, signaling a demographic shift, according to a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“The general fertility rate in the United States decreased by 3% from 2022, reaching a historic low. This marks the second consecutive year of decline, following a brief 1% increase from 2020 to 2021. From 2014 to 2020, the rate consistently decreased by 2% annually,” the CDC reported.

The new report, “Births: Provisional Data for 2023,” analyzes data from more than 99% of birth certificates issued during that year. The report shows a 2% decline from 2022, with 3,591,328 births recorded in 2023.

The CDC found that birth rates declined for women ages 20-39, were unchanged for females 10-14 and women 40-49, and were down for teenagers aged 15-19. The birth rate for women ages 20-24 reached a record low.

This is occurring at the same time transgenderism is reaching record highs. According to a study at the UCLA School of Law’s Williams Institute published in 2022, estimating there are 1.6 million transgender people 13 and older. The number of teenagers and young adults in the United States who identify as transgender has doubled in the past five years, the study shows.

The CDC and news agencies did not make the link. But according to the UCLA report, 18- to 24-year-olds make up 11% of the U.S. population but represent be 24% of the transgender community.

In 2021, the Biden Administration replaced the word “woman” with the phrase “birthing person” in the CDC maternal guidelines and other publications across its massive website.

Now, in a departure from its use of “birthing persons” as a description of women, both the CDC and news groups reported the statistics about the drop in births by using the terms “female” and “woman.” Birthing persons were nowhere in the report.

“After a steep plunge in the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic, the fertility rate has fluctuated. But the 3% drop between 2022 and 2023 brought the rate just below the previous low from 2020, which was 56 births for every 1,000 women of reproductive age,” CNN reported.

“After a steep plunge in the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic, the fertility rate has fluctuated. But the 3% drop between 2022 and 2023 brought the rate just below the previous low from 2020, which was 56 births for every 1,000 women of reproductive age,” wrote ABC News, also avoiding the term “birthing persons.”

In November, a story about births in Louisiana, ABC used the government term, “birthing people.”

“Among all states, birthing people living in Louisiana are the most vulnerable to ‘poor maternal health outcomes,'” the news agency said.

And on April 8, 2024, the CDC wrote, “During Black Maternal Health Week, learn how you can support pregnant people in your life to reduce factors that contribute to pregnancy-related complications and death.”

Both the government and news organizations said that the factors contributing to the low birth rate were housing affordability, job security, and the high cost of child care. They did not mention the indoctrination of youth and college students into what is sometimes described as anti-humanism as part of the radical environmental agenda taught in educational institutions.

  1. I find it hilarious that this article tries to make this a gender-bender issue, avoids mentioning the economy. One trick pony.

    It’s as if the Christian Nationalists want to be completely irrelevant in their analysis and stick to preaching to their small flock. I suppose that’s a good thing. Whatever. Still funny.

    • It’s hilarious the outrage and bogey men you find where none exist.
      Probably a good idea to switch to decaf. You seem to be hallucinating.

    • I see another radical leftist extremist who has various boogeymen, such as the imaginary “Christian nationalists”, hiding under the bed. Oops, sorry for using the misgendering term “boogeyman” — I really meant to say “boogey birthing persons”.

      But if there were in fact a whole horde of Christian nationalists out there somewhere, why would that be a bad thing? Is it because they are Christian, or because they are nationalists?

  2. The declining birth rate is happening here and other places, is it also one of the reasons for the immigration crisis? Replace the domestic birth decline, how convenient.

  3. When America has killed many babies then natural its women will have hard time getting pregnant as well as men’s sperm wouldn’t be healthy enough to get his woman pregnant when they are trying. America can’t expect its coupes will still be blessed to easily get pregnant after the fact it killed more babies here and globally than the Germans done in concentration camps.

    I think GenZ is scared to become parents cause they emotionally, spiritually still much of a “baby” as they were under 18. Cause every GenZ member I talked to them about themselves becoming a parent they made a scared face 😳😬. It’ll be a long while until most of them have any child if any. If GenZ wait as long as Millenials they will never have any kids cause I think GenZ personality are they don’t want to be Old 40 year old parents of young kids like millennials.

  4. They could borrow already approved terminology from the US Dept. of Agriculture and refer to them as ‘brood stock’……..or not.

  5. Where is lovely Paola Estrada on n this one??She’s getting just what she wants.. Less people. And yet she still doesn’t personally do her part by removing herself. Maybe she can stop infesting otherstings on herewith her left-wing garbage

  6. Why would anyone want kids with the government telling you how when and what your aloud to do while raising kids?
    The government has their nose in our freedoms and their power is to great as only the ultra rich can afford to fight in the courts for fairness.

      • Yes she did but was not planned. Back then everybody got a good education not this anti American anti white anti fossil fuel anti cow farts anti cheap energy anti equal laws anti sexual content anti work for a living anti equal rights and so on.
        Different America then and now with the fear that
        Freedom and democracy, as we know, it is going to be gone.

  7. To the Federal Government;
    You can control, indoctrinate us, take by force the fruits of our labor, intimidate and prosecute us when we speak out, etc etc. But you can’t force We the People to create another generation of servile taxpayers and slaves for you, the “elite class”. Now try to control and tax the illegal Third World horde you’ve increasingly foisted upon us. We the People love “passive resistance”. Enjoy!
